The St. Joseph High girls soccer team defeated Pomperaug High of Southbury, 3-2, in the semifinals of the Class L state tournament on Tuesday night at Blue and Gold Stadium in Newtown. With the victory, the top-seeded Cadets (21-1) set up a showdown with second-seeded Suffield High on Saturday, Nov. 21, in the state final.
“It could’ve been, five, six, seven, nothing,” St. Joseph High head coach Jack Nogueira said. “That’s part of soccer. You have to capitalize on your chances. We capitalized three times, it could’ve been a lot more. I’m proud of my girls. They come to St. Joe’s because they want to win championships and now we have an opportunity to win championships.”
